Spread the word – drones are about to become man’s new best friend.
In the developed world, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) – commonly known as drones – have now been so integrated in daily industrial operations that they have become an economic industry on their own. Recent forecasts from consulting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers showed that the drone market worldwide is set to rise to $127billion in the next five years.

You could say drones have opened airspaces for everyone in ways that humans had not imagined. But almost everybody knows that by now; to the extent that there is a drone to almost every mankind problem on earth. Drones already have the ability to increase crop yields, make dangerous jobs safer and act as a lifeline for remote populations. Autonomously piloted systems have the potential to revolutionize how people and goods are transported and to support entirely new and disbursed economic society. What we will learn at the Drones and Digital Aviation Conference – set for the 28th and 29th of November 2019 at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg – is the whole lot of commercial opportunities drones have opened up in various industries. We will discuss the latest and emerging drone applications in industries that include mining and mineral exploration, agriculture, survey and mapping, policing and public safety, wildlife and environmental conservation, sport and recreation, media, transportation; and many more industrial problems that drones have fixed.

Just like any new technology, drones have brought with them teething challenges, not least of which is how authorities should manage air space in the drone age. Recently, drones brought business to a standstill at Gatwick Airport in the United Kingdom; at the conference, we will explore ways of circumventing such problem, and the legal channels that can promote a more peaceful existence between drones and larger aircraft in the air. There are also issues with data capture, protection, privacy and security. The Drones and Digital Aviation Conference is for technologies enthusiasts interested in exploring the challenges and opportunities presented by drones, and the best ways in which the law and technology can come together for the good cause of revolutionising industrial operations through disruptive innovation.

• To understand the airspace challenges and opportunities presented by drone and UAV technology in an economy
• To discuss the legal framework surrounding drone use and how it impacts operations
• To explore the latest developments in the use of drones in various industrial applications
• To navigate the latest technologies in UAV applications
